I had no appointment that day, and Dr. Freeman showed commendable care and professionalism. I tend to be anxious and he was very reassuring.


Dr. Freeman met all of the above.


I had hernia surgery on [omitted] w/*Dr. Jean Pan. In [omitted] I started getting extreme pain in low pelvic area. I have been to several doctors w/NO diagnosis & no relief. I am still without relief & having to spend half of my day in bed on a heating pad. My next appts. are with a urogynecologist and a gastroenterologist. I am doing all of this on my own & there is a month or 2 waiting on each appt. It has been a painful experience.


*Dr. Freeman answered my questions that I had about pre-surgery, surgery and post surgery.


He's the Very Best Doctor I've had in 21 years! He could teach your other doctors how to be a Great doctor full of knowledge, wisdom, and humility.




Dr. Tyner was the Doctor I had my appointment scheduled with. He explained that I needed to see a specialist, and he recommended Dr. Freeman. I felt very confident of Dr. Tyner's recommendation. Dr. Freeman explained as much as he could, but said that a CT scan would show him more. My next appointment with Dr. Freeman Is To go over the results of the CT scan.


*Dr. Freeman and his assistant were both incredibly professional and create a relaxed atmosphere.


The doctor was excellent, however the scheduling method came up after seeing the doctor and so I was not able to communicate my concern to him.


Dr. Freeman did all things expected of a great doctor. We discussed exactly what the risks, rewards, and alternatives for my treatment are.
